I call this "Winter Miracle." You see we live in Texas and as most will know, we never get snow except maybe once every 20 years. If we do get lucky enough to get it, it never sticks. But this was our lucky year to get it and have it stick!

My daughter worked a youth camp this summer between her sophomore semesters in college. She had time before the kids started showing up to document some of the beauty of the facility and it's surroundings.
I made the first one my background on my computer monitor. So serene, and I know the photographer so that made it much more special.
This is a beautiful photo my boyfriend took a few years ago on one of his motorcycle rides in the Texas Hill Country near Glen Rose, TX. I love how the trees frame the the shot.
My son, Duke, is now 24 years old. He was about 4 in this photo and it's my all-time favorite photo of him. We're from Texas and our state flower is the bluebonnet. I took him out one day to take some pictures and while he was posing for some similar to this, he put a long blade of grass in his mouth and said: "How 'bout one like this, Momma?" Hamming it up, hahaaa! That's my boy!
This is another beautiful sunset that I took a picture of last month. I love the colors and cloud formation. You can even see a little bird's nest in our tree that's left from last summer. Spring is already arriving here and the birds are starting to sing their songs.
While travelling in the western US, someone recommended that we go to Palo Duro Canyon in Texas. We'd never heard of it, but it is the second largest canyon in the country after the Grand Canyon. It was spectacular, colorful, and well worth the detour. It's located in the Panhandle region of Texas.

This is a photo I took of sunrise at Moss Lake, Texas.
Believe it or not, these longhorns live just beyond my brother and sister-in-laws' house in a suburb! Their dog loves to go greet them whenever they let her outside.
I spent one week a couple of summers ago giving in to my pleasure of photographing nature at it's finest. This is what I came up with!
I took my family on a month long tour of Texas to view its wildlife and nature centers. One month was not quite long enough! The Good Lord blessed Texas with so much beauty! I love the stark contrasts.
Sunday afternoons at their best in Navasota, Texas.
I recently attended a conference in San Antonio, Texas. It was my first trip to that city. We stayed in a hotel along the river walk. It was beautiful! I'm sharing one of my photos taken along the river walk.
Beautiful sunrise in Sunset!
